I Was Buried In Mount Pleasant Cemetery

This song is by Woods of Ypres and appears on the album Woods IV: The Green Album (2009).

I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken from me

Our tree was full and green, I had to leave it
The sadness was overwhelming, to be alone beneath it

The sun came down hot and hard, I could never sleep
To disappear was the only way I could find relief

When I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken so suddenly

First I paid my respects to Glenn Gould
And then I visited the grave of Alexander Muir
Next to Eaton’s tomb, I hung my head and cried
Looking for Joseph Mulgrew, I gave up and died

When I was buried...

The birds sang for the flowers in bloom, spring had just begun
Recently fitted for a suit, now lying in a box
By summer, I was gone, my remains stolen from the ground
My body never recovered and I was never found... until now

Oh...
Oh...

I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, between the monuments and trees
At the heart of the city, amongst the statues and fountains
New life could begin, where the old path I ran came to an end
